In these extraordinary times, we have amended our judging process, and we will not be carrying out any in-school judging visits.
In order to keep the Awards going, we will be moving to a virtual judging process, outlined below.
Our judges are volunteers, and judging is an independent and peer-led process. The majority of the panel members are practising teachers and many are Teaching Award winners. The panel also includes representation from organisations across the educational spectrum.
We are grateful to these dedicated professionals who give their time to ensure a smooth and credible process for those involved and to help celebrate the amazing people who work in our schools. We need to do this more than ever in this current climate.
Please note, we anticipate having to postpone the announcement of Silver Winners planned for mid-June and the House of Commons Tea for Silver Winners in July, and will post further details in due course.
